With repertoire from established classics Tosca and The Barber of Seville to Puccini’s early romance Edgar, Handel’s delicate serenata Acis and Galatea, Gilbert and Sullivan’s dark comedy The Yeomen of the Guard, and a sensational central double bill of Il segreto di Susanna and Pagliacci, this will be a summer to remember. Join us in the beautiful setting of Holland Park, surrounded by woodlands and gardens, and enjoy an experience like no other.
